Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring
My guess is there is air in the lines, if this is the problem how do I go about bleeding it out?
I'm betting your correct about needing to bleed out air from brake lines. now, your gonna need one other person to give you a hand with this(unless you happen to have a pressure bleeder handy) this takes a lil communication or you can easily wind up getting more air in the brake lines! To start, either one of you need to sit in drivers seat and start pumping brake pedal until it starts to finally become firm. once this happens the pedal needs to be pushed as hard as possible and held. then let the guy sitting by the bleeder valve know it's firm and you have it held. this is when you want to crack the valve and let some air out. be careful not to release pedal until your partner has the valve tight again! once it's tight pump brakes until once again they are firm and hold. repeat this process until you notice no air coming from bleeder valve. then repeat for next wheel cylinder. if done correctly the brake pedal should become nice and firm from just a pump or two. one thing to keep in mind is the level of brake fluid in reservoir. if this becomes too low you could wind up pumping air into the lines and that will really get irritating fast so try to avoid it! hope this helps, good luck!

Testimonial: "when I was doing the back driver side brake, I stupidly removed a bolt I am assuming was the bleeder valve because when I removed it brake fluid started running out, am i correct that is the bleeder valve? If not then could you kindly point me in the right direction of the bleeder valve please. Thank you"
If the brake pedal was ok prior to changing the brakes that shouldnt be the problem unless you have disconnected or opened a brake line. If the rear calipers are the wind in type and the park brake is part of the caliper, most likely the pistons are not lined up correctly with the caliper housing
